Why our service is the best

In a secured area entrance and exit is normally monitored by security guards where vehicles sign in and out. Remote Offsite Monitoring, in conjunction with Security Guards, offers a complete security and surveillance solution for business and office parks. Security Guards offers S.I.R.A regulation grade security officers A, B, C and D, which are trained to monitor and patrol the business – or office park. Remote Offsite Monitoring offers 24 hours, 7 days a week, offsite monitoring solution run from our control room in Wynberg, Johannesburg. What it entails is that surveillance cameras are placed in the streets all over the business – or office park to form a complete security viewing grid. With the surveillance cameras criminal or unauthorised activities will be picked up immediately by the control room operator. The operator will immediately let the onsite security guard know so that appropriate action can be taken. Remote Offsite Monitoring can even go to the next step by following the vehicle via the live stream cameras to ensure that it goes to a designated point. Should the vehicle deviate from its path the security guards can be alerted by the control room operator so that they can follow up to ensure that the vehicle finds its way to where it is intended to go. Another scenario in which Remote Offsite Monitoring can play a role is when a vehicle reaches the entrance of a particular office or building the remote offsite monitoring control room operator can let the person in by contact via intercom to open and close the gate or door. There are many more scenarios in which Remote Offsite Monitoring can play a key role to enhance the security setup of a business – or office park.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition

We at SOS believe that reliability is a key factor when selecting a security system , human lives and property can only optimally be protected by robust and sophisticated security systems designed for specific applications thus our reason for hand selecting and vetting the world class brands of products that comply with stringent adherence and performance used to work with our systems.

SOS uses ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology to recognize number plates and cross reference this across our global database of suspicious vehicles which includes our subscription to the SAPS hotlist. This technology relies on strategically placed cameras in places like neighborhoods, complexes, shopping malls, airport car parks, banks, casinos etc

Our software specializes on the following categories:
  • Number plate recognition
  • Face recognition
  • Time and Attendance
  • Access Control
  • SMS integration
  • RFID solutions
  • Bespoke

Once a number plate is received by the SOS server, it is compared to the plates on file and on the Law Enforcement database. If it turns out to be a suspicious vehicle, the security teams at estates (or shopping malls, business campuses or anywhere there is a constant flow of vehicles), can be prompted to take the relevant action.


Boom gate Systems


SOS offers magnetic locks, automated drop arm pedestrian barrier, walk through metal detectors, pedestrian special needs gate, semi-automated and motorized for you. SOS installs and services boom gate systems. These restrict access into secure areas, and can be linked to an access control system. SOS offers effective boom gate systems for pedestrian with special needs gate. Special needs gate can be operated by a push button.This is for, where high level of security is required or for time and attendance application. Because the turnstile ensures positive entry or exit it will ensure that a person has entered or exited the premises.


SOS’s surface mount single directional barrier is designed for use in high security vehicle control applications were ongoing vehicle theft occurs through an exit only passage. The application of the surface mount barrier is necessary on parking bay levels where the slab may not be penetrated due to potential structural damage. This makes it necessary to apply a barrier mounted to the surface.

The single direction traffic flow spike barrier is designed to control traffic flow in one direction.


  • To control traffic flow in one direction and disable tyres traveling in wrong directions.
  • The Single Direction Manual Spikes is suitable for shopping malls, airports, office blocks, casino’s etc.
  • Where single directional traffic flow is required.

Automated Barriers

The barrier is 100% locally manufactured and designed to handle a high volume of traffic and has a 100% duty cycle. The barrier is equipped with a torque motor which lifts the boom arm through a sinusoidal level system which allows the boom arm to be locked in both up and down position. All the electronic equipment is manufactured to ISO 9002 standards.

The boom arm lifts up to 85º in the event of a power failure. Up to 4 tension springs can be used for counter balancing.

Left and right-hand barriers are available with round or octagonal boom arms. The boom arm can also be equipped with a curtain. The barrier requires minimum maintenance.


  • Parking Garages.
  • Golf or Residential Estates.
  • Factories & Mines.
  • Industrial and Commercial use.
  • Any application where vehicles need to be controlled.

Exclusive Entry 24/7

SOS has the latest generation of industry leading access control and biometric access control security systems that offer powerful advances in digital video management, smart card applications, biometric integration and open IT systems.

Access control systems can cater for virtually an unlimited number of users, with proximity cards, uniquely encoded key ring tags or biometrics (fingerprint readers)

Biometric Access Control Readers

Biometric access control readers provide increased security by assessing and identifying a person’s unique body feature. Biometrics combine the security of using a cardholders badge or PIN in conjunction with a biometric template. Our biometric solutions offer fast and accurate access control.

Smart Cards

We offer a two-in-one solution that combines a biometric device and smart card reader, using standard non-contact smart card technology. Fingerprint or hand geometry templates are captured during enrollment and directly written to a smart card chip.

Logical Access

Enterprise access cards consolidate credentials onto a single, secure smart card providing photo ID as well as a security device that enables secure windows and network login, PC ‘locking’, secure remote access (VPN), secure e-mail with digital signatures and single sign-on to your enterprise and desktop applications. Employees can also access buildings and other facilities with the same card for a truly consolidated security solution.

Technical Specifications and Capabilities

  • Access control systems are networkable
  • Each cardholder can be assigned unique access security levels
  • Cardholder locations can be tracked to prevent two people from sharing a card
  • Cards can be programmed with specific lock-out times
  • Access control systems can be integrated with time and attendance software packages

Alarm Systems

An intruder alarm system is designed to detect intruder presence at your premises. When detected, a siren will activate and communicate an alarm signal to one of our highly sophisticated Monitoring centres, from where an appropriate response will be coordinated. Intruder systems can be either hard wired or wireless

The purpose of an intruder alarm system is:

  • To protect the physical assets and people within a premises
  • To deter crime and vandalism
  • To ensure a prompt armed response service is dispatched in response to an alarm signal

Commonly utilised detection devices include:

  • Passive Infra Red Sensors (PIR’s) – we offer microwave, digital and dual technology PIR’s that are either wall or ceiling mounted. Most of our PIR’s, although not all, are also pet immune, an important factor that causes false alarms
  • Break glass sensors
  • Vibration sensors
  • Seismic vault and safe detectors
  • Smoke and heat detectors
  • Door and window magnetic contacts
  • External beams and outdoor passives for early detection and warning

The key to effective alarm systems is the careful selection and placement of the detection devices, so as to best suit the environment and risk level. This is why we recommend that one employs the services of a qualified home security expert who is able to advise on the appropriate placement of all detection devices.
